Domingo Ceramics is an arts de la table project created by sculptor Ivana Brenner. It was conceived during her time as an artist in residency in Paris, when she experienced the art of hosting and setting a table to welcome family, friends, and lovers. Domingo means Sunday in Spanish, the day that in her native Buenos Aires people gather together with family and friends to share a meal.
All our pieces are handmade entirely by the artist in NYC. Because of this, each piece is unique and no two pieces are exactly alike. Produced in very small quantities with porcelain and 22k gold luster, Domingo's tableware captures the artist’s creative universe in functional items.
Ivana Brenner is an Argentinian artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She earned her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a merit-based full scholarship.
